I noticed the site throwing the following message a couple of times today -
Stack Exchange We are currently offline for maintenance Routine maintenance usually takes less than an hour. If this turns into an extended outage, we will tweet updates from @StackStatus or post details on the status blog.
Was the site really down for maintenance activity or is it a false alarm? I got the error message only on my touch device and didn't observe it on my desktop. Does it mean the site would have been inaccessible only via touch device specifically?
Also, I couldn't see any stackexchange profiles shown in my profile during that moment. It somewhat said, You have currently no stackexchange accounts.
Update Seems like the community feels I should have had followed the tweets, however, I couldn't. I took sometime to post the question, but the responses redirect to the same page. I would definitely visit the link to the tweets, as of now I can't at my workplace.
